Former World Champion Mark Cavendish has been involved in a collision with a car while out training in Tuscany, Italy. The 2011 Tour de France green jersey winner suffered a bruised arm from the crash.

Last night he took to Twitter, saying: “Went & hit the back of a car that slammed on today in training.

"Wasn't ideal. Apart from a bruised arm, I'm relatively OK. If anyone cares."

The news comes after former Team Sky teammate Bradley Wiggins and Sky head coach Shane Sutton were also hit by cars in the last few weeks.
